Multiplayer Functionality

This being a beginner's book, we haven't talked about how to create multiplayer games. Suffice it to say that Android provides you with the APIs to do just that. Depending on the type of game, the difficulty of implementing multiplayer functionality varies. Turn-based games, such as chess or card games, are pretty simple to implement. Fast-paced action games or real-time strategy games are a different matter altogether. In both cases, you need to have an understanding of network programming, a topic for which a lot of materials exist on the Web.
